Citadis, the organization mandated by the Vaucluse General Council to delegate the supervision of public works, hired Olivier Souquet of DeSo Architectes Associés for the urban restoration of a three-floor building with four public housing units (T2-T4). To be better integrated in the city and be part of the building's continuity, Olivier Souquet selected pigmented Ductal® with organic fibres for its mineral appearance. The building's façades are adorned with perforated sunshade canopies made of Ductal® with organic fibres. They ensure sunlight filtration while producing a subtle light and shadow effect on the façade.
Characteristics of the project
51 perforated canopies made of Ductal® with organic fibres, sienna colour
Panel perforations made with high-pressure water jet
It facilitated the fabrication of overhanging openwork sunshade canopies of 50 cm, only 3 cm thick at the end and without reinforcing steel. The low weight of the sunshade canopies also facilitated rapid construction.
